Reeve is a journalist and correspondent for ABC News, so it shouldn't have been too much of a stretch for him to film the scene as an on-screen TV reporter.

He will apparently feature in a pivotal scene in the film, and he even received a round of applause after wrapping his scene.

Fans had recently expressed disappointment over David Coronswet's new Superman suit.

“I love & support David Corenswet’s casting as the Superman but I am super disappointed in the suit,” wrote one X user.

“This is such a massive downgrade from Henry Cavill’s Superman. What a missed opportunity. Hoping they fix this in post.”

Another added: “Let’s not kid ourselves. The idea is there, but the execution, not so much. This looks like something from a low-budget CW show. It’s that bad IMO. A serious downgrade.”

Co-CEO of DC Studios Peter Safran revealed more of the plot last year, saying: “It focuses on Superman balancing his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing. He is the embodiment of truth, justice and the American way. He is kindness in a world that thinks that kindness is old-fashioned.”

Many fans had hoped Henry Cavill would return to the role, after he stepped down from The Witcher.
